Android300Facebook users have made it clear that they want more control over their privacy. The company’s investors said that repeatedly during Facebook’s first shareholders meeting, and the latest Android mobile app update shows that the site is working on more ways to get privacy controls in the users’ hands.

From the Android app, Facebook users can now change the privacy settings on any of their prior posts.

Previously, users could only control who sees posts they’re about to make from their Android app, but now people can go back to any post they’ve made and tweak the privacy settings.

By going to a post on their mobile Timeline and tapping the three-dot emblem on the top-right corner of the post, users can then select “Edit Privacy,” to tweak who sees the post.



Other updates in the Android app include the ability to send multiple photos in a single message, as well as stability and memory improvements.

Facebook also recently updated Home, allowing users to customize their app launcher by docking their favorite apps. The Home update also included bug fixes.
